JLU Aluminum Rear Exhaust Skid for 392 Hemi
This page is specifically for the Rear Exhaust Skid Assembly for the Factory 392 Hemi V8 JLU Models. If you are looking for a full belly skid system that offers this coverage and more, click here.
When you're looking to save weight, aluminum skids become the largest piece of real estate to consider on or under your Jeep.
We build these skids out of 1/4" thick 5052 Aluminum because of its superior formability and strength -- compared to many other alloys. The design and shape of the skids largely determine how rigid they will stay over time. We've designed these belly skids to tuck bolt heads up and out of the way, where possible (as can be seen on the rear crossmember and fuel tank skids).

UHMW - The Ultra High Molecular Weight Option
Want to make these skid plates slippery and even more impact-resistant? Select the UHMW Option! UHMW stands for Ultra High Molecular Weight. It's the 3/8" thick black cutting board like material that can be optioned onto these skids; it is more abrasion resistance than carbon steel, and it's fairly light weight. It helps to better distribute and absorb impacts, and keep you sliding along rather than getting stuck or hanging up on an obstacle since it's slippery and self lubricating. If you select this option, the UHMW will come pre-installed on the bottom of the aluminum skids.
Can I add the UHMW Kit later?
Yes; however you will have to remove your belly skids if they are already installed. There is labor and less steps involved if you order the system equipped with UHMW originally.
Products are designed and fabricated to fit vehicles that have varying tolerances from the factory, minor hand fitting may be required.
Products are shipped bare metal unless otherwise specified by the customer. Bare metal products may have scratches or surface imperfections as a result of raw material handling, manufacturing, and fabrication. However, these imperfections are easily covered up with a textured powder coat finish. Additional finishing, sanding, and prep work may be required if you wish to also have them finished with a smooth powder coat or paint.
Projected lead times are estimates only, and are subject to changes due to production realities, including material and labor availability and sudden variability in order volume. Lead times are not guaranteed, but we do guarantee that we are hard at work trying to get the best product we can produce and into our customers’ hands as quickly as possible.
All Next Venture Motorsports products are laser cut, CNC formed, and hand-weld with pride in the USA. We are a Colorado-based business, and welcome visitors by appointment at our Grand Junction, CO headquarters. We hope to see you out there on the trail soon!
Great product not easy to install you definitely need 2-3 hours of work depending on your skill level. This comes without any information or instructions but that’s understandable since it is new product. Customer service is excellent and my favorite part it is made in the USA and worth paying extra just for that.
Thank you Next Venture now let’s build the skid plate for Oem front bumper to match the back one.
Thanks so much for the review, and supporting American manufacturers! We did just released the product specific install guide for this item at the end of last week, so our apologies that it missed you. We should now have that available for folks moving forward. Thanks again for the order and noted on that skid plate idea ;)

parts inspired by the trail
Our team got into the game after rock crawling, wrenching, fabricating and being inspired to design and build parts for what we love to do: hit the trail.
